Description: Residents are also concerned that, should the co-op fail in its new location, a larger store with less regard for the neighborhood could move in. According to the city's Office of Zoning Administration, the variance, if approved, would remain with the property. "This is a residential neighborhood, and if you put a major commercial business in the middle of it, it can have an impact," [Andrew McTyre] said. "This isn't the same little ol' co-op that everyone cares about and loves."Corry Lyons, who lives just across Fellows Avenue from the building, said it's easy for those who live elsewhere to misinterpret the residents' unhappiness with the prospect of this zoning variance. He is certain the effect on his property-and quality of life-would be significant. "Hundreds of deliveries will come right by my house," he said. "That's why I do take this more personally."If [Travis Hance] is concerned about the vote on Thursday, he's certainly not letting it dampen his enthusiasm. "I've been here 11 years and I've never been more excited about my work than I am now," he said. "It's a fun time. Generally speaking, we just want to have a fun place for people to shop. I'm really confident that the {variance request} will go the way we seek."
